Spab (2143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
On tap at Volo. Pours a very dark brown with large, creamy beige head. Aroma is light roasty coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour is also reasonably roasty with a little more coffee than comes through in the aroma and some cocoa. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

Ferris (2041) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Draft - Nitro - Roast malts and coffee. Jet black and that nitro cream head. Roast malts, little bit of dark fruit and coffee. Light and rich at the same time. On nitro this is great, likely thin otherwise.

sudomorph (383) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap at Bellwoods. Served on nitro. Pours black with a one finger, creamy, tan head that doesn’t fade. Medium lacing clings to the glass. Aroma is roasty with a hint of chocolate. Taste is a mild bitter with a roastyness and a bit of tartness on the finish. Low-medium body with a low carbonation. Very smooth and fairly clean in the mouth. Overall nice. Tasty but not over done. Highly drinkable and sessionable. Cheers!

Beerenberger (1276) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Tip of the hat to Sammy for the great trade. Aroma of dark roasted malts, as well as, notes of roasted meat. Pours an opaque black with an rapidly disapearing tan head and minimal to no lacing. The taste follows the the nose. Dark roast malts, with hints of coffee bitterness, chocolate, and citrus. Nice balance. Big taste for such a low ABV. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, a very nice example of what a stout should be.

DuffMan (6167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle, sent to me by Sammy-- thanks! Dark brown pour with a tan head that recedes rather rapidly to a light skim. Aroma is very roasty with underlying notes of chocolate and ash. The palate delivers more roast with an underlying cola-like sweetness and light cocoa. Dry short finish. A very flavourful lower ABV session stout.

tom10101 (2243) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Thanks to Sammy for this one! Dark brown with a small mostly lasting beige head and little lacing. Aroma is mild with roasted malt, smoke, earthy notes and light chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet and about the same as aroma and a light bitter finish. Light body. Moderate to good carbonation carbonation. Quite interesting for a 3.8% abv Stout, but not much more. Drinkable.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle at CGBD. Pours brown with a beige head. Medium roasted malts, hints of coffee, and some light caramel sweetness. Lighter earthy notes as well. Pretty good.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige to tan head. Soft roast, cocoa, chocolate, faint coffee. Soft chocolate, bitter with light acidic tones. Faintly acidic, chocolate, cocoa, long roast into the finish.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
2013-08-11. Black body with a small tan head. 3++ Very dry roasty aroma has coffee like touches to the roast. Flavour is fairly dry bitter roast up front, muted sweet dark malt in the middle. Average plus palate with modest carbonation. Tons of flavour for such a low abv. I suspect that the strong roast character is part of how they achieve that which is unfortunately not entirely to my own tastes. Pretty decent nonetheless. Bottle from Bellwoods, Toronto
